You and I both know already, I’m a little bit odd. But lately, I’ve felt a lot more practical and level-headed than usual. Maybe it has to do with being 8 months pregnant? Maybe making the foray into home ownership in Los Angeles has brought me down to earth?
Whatever the reason, I have some pragmatic uses for that innocent and inexpensive little box of cornstarch in your pantry… that you might not know.
Cornstarch, or corn flour, is used as a thickening agent in gravies and other sauces, custards and pie fillings, and batters — like tempura batter. Cornstarch is also an anti-caking agent that is found in powdered sugar. But you knew that already.
Can you think of 5 other uses for cornstarch? How about just one? You might be surprised what a multi-tasker that white powder can be!
